Novell, a global software leader for enterprises worldwide, today announced a strategic technical partnership agreement with GWAVA®, a leading provider of compliance, security, archiving and eDiscovery for electronic communication. Within the terms of the agreement, the two companies will collaborate to provide compliance, security, management and disaster recovery across Novell technologies. In addition to Novell GroupWise, GWAVA will also expand its integrated security, compliance and eDiscovery solution to support Novell’s file-sharing, collaboration and mobile management products.

“Novell is proud to partner with GWAVA which is equally committed to providing leading solutions that address today’s enterprise needs,” said Kathleen Owens, President and General Manager of Novell. “GWAVA is a key strategic partner that provides security, unified archiving and disaster recovery for our Novell GroupWise customers and we look forward to working with them to extend their solutions across other products within our portfolio.”

Regulatory compliance requirements to secure and archive electronic communication extends beyond just email.
